This podcast explores the meaning of freedom and how we can find it in our own lives.
If you have a vision for your future but feel stuck or that it's too hard to achieve this podcast is for you.
After suffering from a broken neck and starting a journey of personal development I've reached a point where I've been able to break through some of the chains that were holding me back. Now I want to share the "12 chains" model to help you break chains in your own life and move forward towards your vision of freedom whether that's time freedom, money freedom or location freedom.
Episodes in this podcast are a mix of conversations with guests, coaching sessions and general thoughts about finally finding freedom.

Breaking the chain of fear so you can move further and faster
In this episode I focus on fear, a chain at level 3, and something that often holds us back from taking action, or trying new things.
At level 3 the chains are about the images we create in our head and I share a few stories and examples of having the mental image but breaking through fear and taking the action.
I also present a quick exercise we can all do to start addressing our fears and it starts with recognising what they are.
If we can break free of our fears we unlock the potential to move more quickly towards our goals, dreams and visions.
